Changemakers are a vital part in the transition towards an inclusive and regenerative future, yet 90% of impact-driven entrepreneurs fail within 3 years.

That's why we've created a Progress Programme, an exclusive space where you'll find a unique blend of resources, knowledge, and genuine peer-to-peer support. Our mission is to empower you with the tools and insights needed to navigate the challenges of all changemakers who want to make 2024 their most impactful year yet.

Take this Programme if...

  • You are a changemaker or startup looking to make measurable progress in your entrepreneurial journey.

  • You want personalised guidance and support to unlock your full potential.

  • You are committed to making a real difference and contribute to an equitable and regenerative future with your impactful venture.

  • You crave a community of like-minded changemakers who understand your struggles and can offer genuine support.

  • You are ready to invest in your growth and success.
